What a Girl Wants

 notice the purse charm?  click to enlarge the photo
A pair of fun and funky shoes, a nice purse and lots of bling, that's what most girls want.  A nice ride is usually on the list too, but that's a different stamp.  And yes I do have a couple different stamps of convertible cars, I realize most of you aren't surprised by that but there are probably a couple of readers who don't know me that well yet...

While I was traipsing thru the arts and crafts store, this time because daughter dearest wanted some supplies I passed by this hot pink zebra paper.  I was appalled by the price of one sheet but as you can see I'm not the type to be easily intimidated by over priced crafting supplies.  I just limited myself to one sheet instead of three!
 You probably can't tell from this photo that when the shoe was stamped it was covered with clear embossing powder to give it a little more pizazz.   Also it's difficult to see that on the inside the shoe was stamped again, but in a very pale pink.  It just looks better in real life.

don't forget the inside

 Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Sassy Shoes"
ink - Stampin' Up "Rose Red" and "Pretty in Pink"; Memento "Tuxedo Black"
paper - Recollections "Hot Pink Zebra" dp; Stampin' Up "black" and "Melon Mambo" cs
miscellaneous - Recollections flourish; button; Nesties circle and inverted scalloped circle dies; ribbon; twine; charm; bling; embossing powder; sewing machine
